Beyonce has blessed our ears once more by giving the BeyHive a first taste of her upcoming album Renaissance with her new single “Break My Soul,” which dropped Monday night via Tidal and a lyric video on YouTube.

It’s the first single from Bey’s upcoming seventh project, Renaissance, which she announced would be released July 29 and cryptically added that it would only be “act i.” She subtly announced it by changing the bios on her socials to “6. BREAK MY SOUL at midnight ET, which means “Break My Soul”, is also the sixth track. (Here’s all we know so far about Renaissance. )

This house-tinged song is dance-ready, thanks to its crisp snares, piano production and Bey singing with herself. She sings, “You won’t break my heart,” in the chorus. This song will be a new mantra that will grace mugs and T-shirts. Big Freedia, a Queen B collaborator, can be heard singing, “Release Your Anger, Release Your Mind

Referring to Beyonce gracing the July 2022 cover of British Vogue, Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful describes Renaissance as: “Music that makes you rise, that turns your mind to cultures and subcultures, to our people past and present, music that will unite so many on the dance floor, music that touches your soul.”

Renaissance is the follow-up to 2016’s Lemonade, which gave Bey her sixth solo No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. She released a joint album with Jay-Z, Everything is Love , in 2018, The Lion King, Homecoming and the Gift Soundtrack. Queen B also recorded “Be Alive”, for the Oscar-winning movie King Richard ..

“Break my Soul” arrives two days following the Juneteenth holiday. Beyonce’s charity single “Black Parade” was released two years ago on Juneteenth. This raised money for BeyGOOD’s Black Business Impact Fund, which supports Black-owned small businesses. The single received four nominations at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards, including record and song of the year, and it went on to win best R&B performance, marking Bey’s 28th Grammy win and making her the most awarded single and female artist in Grammy history.
